Asvel is no longer invested in the Euroleague. The club conceded its first defeat of the season, Thursday, October 14 against Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv (93-85), on behalf of the 4th day.

The Villeurbannais, who had achieved the feat of beating Efes Istanbul, European champion (75-73), on Tuesday, remained on a series of six straight wins, three in the French championship and as many in European competition.

Still deprived of David Lighty and Antoine Diot, Asvel never gave up, even winning the last quarter (23-18). But the club from the Lyon suburbs lost to an opponent who was superior to them and dominated the game.

Nothing alarming for the French club, which is 4th in the standings with 7 points. Asvel will still have a lot to do to rectify the situation, Thursday against Olimpia Milan, still undefeated in three matches.
